and hallucinations. one time in my life i was responsible for the federal program of mental health services in america. i have to admit we failed. we failed america in protecting the lives of the seriously mentally ill. most of what they do is suffer in silence. their families want to do better by them and as a country we have not stepped up and been sympathetic and caring and appropriate for the seriously mentally ill. >> an extremely important point. what i was going to say is you both have made extremely valid points. my point really is that you have three successive appalling mass shootings involving young men in their 20s where the background to all of them was not dissimilar. they seem to be fairly normal kind of slightly off, but nothing with alarm bells. the point of examining their character is that there must be a good likelihood that there are others like hg them out there who may be considering similar atrocities. how do people who know these types of people spot any warning signs? >> piers -- >> let me start with the doctor. >> i'm sorry. i have three small children. before thi

such as are usually given to adult schizophrenics to regulate their hallucinations. but in this case, children are getting it to control their behavior. so what we have is a massive social experiment of the chemical control of children's behavior, with no idea of the long-term consequences of these heavy-duty anti-psychotics on kids. and i know that canadians statistics just last week showed that within last five years, 43 there's been a 43 percent increase in the rate of dispensing of stimulant prescriptions for add or adhd, and most of these are going to boys. in other words, what we're seeing is an unprecedented burgeoning of the diagnosis. and i should say, really, i'm talking about, more broadly speaking, what i would call the destruction of american childhood, because add is just a template, or it's just an example of what's going on. in fact, according to a recent study published in the states, nearly half of american adolescents now meet some criteria or criteria for mental health disorders. so we're talking about a massive impact on our children of something in our culture that's just

the hallucinations but we do have the magical thinking and isolation and sometimes some naked aggression. and what happens is because at the time they may not be a danger to themselves or others, you can't get them involuntarily committed, especially if they are of age. and if you are able to get them into the emergency room and admitted by a psychiatrist because there isn't a lot of bed space, within two or three days, they are discharged, on medications, but the medications have such severe side effects that even older adults but in this case younger adults don't want to take that medication, and that's the conundrum. >> and she writes here, she goes on to say, i don't believe my son belongs in jail, but it seems like the united states is using prison as the solution of choice for mentally ill people. what kinds of options does she have? >> well, she certainly is speaking out of frustration. we don't want to use jails in that way. i was a chief psychologist for federal prison for many years, but i can tell you, because a lot of these folks couldn't get into psychiatric hospitals, sometimes the m

on the hallucinates committee, but also for your -- on the rules committee, but also for providing strategy for bringing our troops home quickly and safely and orderly. thank you again. with the drawdowns from two wars, now's really the perfect opportunity to reevaluate -- re-evaluate our runaway defense spending and make sure that our defense budget reflects the overall national security strategy. many outside experts from across the political spectrum have concluded that the pentagon can afford much more substantial cuts that's found in this bill. secondly, while this bill contains some audit provisions, these measures are only set to take hold in 2017. the pentagon needs to be audited, should have been audited and should be audited right now. i mean, last year, this year, next year. we can't wait until 2017. earlier this year i offered an amendment that would have cut any federal agency's budget by 5% if they are unable to provide audit-ready financial documents. we need to get some sunlight on the pentagon's books to create a culture of responsibility and accountability at the defense d
